I am running Matlab 2013b on Windows 10.
There exist a program that runs on Linux session that I normally run via Putty Release 0.70.
The program is executed from the Linux command window and takes two input arguments.
From the Windows Matlab I want to be able to execute the program on Linux.
Is that possible?
Please keep in mind I am a Unix newbie.

The "system" function lets you execute terminal commands on your local machine from MATLAB and can, therefore, be used in a MATLAB script to execute terminal commands.
